Your world. Your choice.

top-center

Do you want to study abroad but can’t find a program that has the courses you need? Dreaming of flying to Europe for a semester but your degree requirements are keeping you grounded? We hear you!

That’s why we created an exciting new program, ASU Global Flex, that will help you solve this dilemma and give you the freedom to study abroad in 1 of 7 exciting cities: Berlin, Dublin, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome and Sydney.


ASU Global Flex provides you an opportunity to enroll in ASU courses online while also enrolling in courses in your host country.  You can spend as little as 6 weeks or as long as a full semester abroad.

Need to take a full semester of ASU courses?  You can do that too. This exciting program gives you the freedom to enroll in as many of the ASU courses you need to stay on track to graduate and, if you choose, take some local courses.  You even have the opportunity to participate in an internship.

Whether you are a student on campus or fully online, ASU Global Flex gives you the freedom to explore the world and still stay on track to graduate.  It’s your world. It’s your choice!
